Shocked to hear of my old friends passing. So many wonderful memories come flooding back. Perhaps most significant however was Bill's unwavering faith in God. I was inspired and encouraged by him more times than I can count. A man of principle and integrity who loved his family without condition. RIP my friend.

I am sorry for your family's loss. My boys were involved with basketball at the HSB in the early 2000's and I remember coming across your family several times. Bill always had a cheerful disposition and you all were always so friendly to everyone. I am sure he will be missed. Again, sorry for your loss.
